And the year ends.

Wow. What a brilliant year this has been.

Not that there were no bad-slash-gloomy moments, but I guess the good ones outweigh the negatives (don't they always?). With a mere 10 minutes left on my hands, I'm still stuck on what to blog about! Gah!

Would my Youtube cover of Hillsong's Oceans Will Part do?

Oh my gosh. What a year. WHAT A YEAR. Not only did I get back to blogging, but I also got to go on trips around the Bicol region and order my first item (The Doodle Planner!) online!

This year could've been better with dad, but though he's across the globe, we constantly get to chat with him on Hangouts. WHAT A YEAR indeed.

Alright everyone, I don't want to miss the countdown to 2014, so this is all for now!

See you next year!

All Day With My Little Bro (not so little anymore)


So today, my brother and I had the freedom to walk around the mall for an entire day (well, at least until 5pm). I think I spent all my savings within a mere 6 hours of circling the mall. :/ Oh well.

Here's a summary (again) in photos. (The lazy spirit of Christmas just always gets me.)

As you might probably guess, we had our stomachs stuffed. So much. Wow. We had lunch at Bigg's, then had snacks at Rafabel's - and as if we weren't full enough, we also ate ice cream. No stomach rumbling here. Thank God for these.

Of course, we went to the arcade, roamed the department store, and hit the internet shop (JP, at least - I went to the bookstore). Speaking of which, I "accidentally" splurged in the bookstore today. Whew.

Here are my purchases today - I'm a little addicted to plain notebooks and pens, just like my dad. It's something we've always had in common, aside from great taste in music and book collecting.

I couldn't help but doodle while sipping my frappe. It's one of those things that helps me remember what happened. I doodle on my planner, and on whatever notebook I have with me.

I have a lot more pens/pencils/coloring materials stashed in the cabinet and drawers, some even dating as far as 2008. Yes, they're all still working, which is awesome for someone who likes doodling things or jotting down ideas. Gah. Awesome.

Well, that's it for now, I guess. Tomorrow will be the last day of 2013, and I want to make the last post special. I have no idea what to do yet, but I'll think of something. Ciao!

More than blessed!

Christmas is that time of year when we give presents to people we care about, without expecting anything in return. Well, I can't say I didn't get anything though. :)

I was also looking at National Bookstore for new things (i.e. books and sketchpads) when I found this little book of devotionals for women. I gave it to my mom as a gift later, with a bookmark to get her organized. Hahaha.

Oh, and my little brother and I also got matching bullet necklaces from Penshoppe. It's just something we've wanted to both share as siblings for a while now. Yay!

Other things I got/received for Christmas:

Yeah, so this post may all just be photos, I know. Hahaha. Sorry about that! I'm going to write better ones tomorrow and the next days, I promise. (No, I'm not showing off.) :P

Cheers and a Merry Christmas to you!
